One of the current trends in naval history literature is the attention being given to accuracy. Many, if not most, writers are striving to cast out the old misconceptions and get the story straight. They have dealt recently with topics as broad as the British blockade of the American seaboard during the War of 1812 or as specific as sailing to windward. 2 This article falls somewhere in between. This quote is the only specific explanation to the term given in McKee's book. A portion of the Sinclair letters are published in the author's Sailors of 1812: Memoirs and Letters of Naval Officers on Lake Ontario. Youngstown, N. Y. : Old Fort Niagara Association, 1997). The author points out that he mistakenly referred to Sinclair as a commodore in the introductory remarks of this title.

A key naval engagement of the War of 1812, the Battle of Lake Erie saw an American squadron capture its British counterpart on Sept. In March 1813, the new commander of American naval forces on Lake Erie, Master Commandant Oliver H. Perry, arrived at Presque Isle. Assessing his command, he found that there was a general shortage of supplies and men. Preparations. Due to American control of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Peninsula, supplies for the British squadron had to be transported overland from York. This supply line had been disrupted previously in April 1813 due to the British defeat at the Battle of York which saw a shipment of 24-pdr carronades intended for Detroit captured.

The book is not just a naval history, and does not overly concentrate on details of construction of the ships involved. At most times it would appear that providing crews for the fleets was more of a concern than the construction of ships. In Lords of the Lake, Robert Malcomson explores the naval activity that took place on Lake Ontario during the War of 1812. In this brilliant and highly readable work, Malcomson succeeds in outlining, perhaps for the first time, the importance of the naval war on Lake Ontario in determining events of the larger conflict.
